a year in review --

spent some time today organizing and figuring out tax info for the business side of Serenity Lane Designs --

it's interesting to look back at it all --

here is an interesting "snapshot" of last year's sales.   the darker the green, the more sales shipped to that state.  i also had 5 international orders last year - 3 went to the UK, and 2 off to Canada.

pretty interesting - i like to see where stuff headed off to!

it will be interesting to see how the map fills in for 2013.

more projects coming soon! :)

thanks for stopping by, and happy stamping!

winter thanks. . .

a cute project to share with you today -- these are the thank you notes i made to send out after christmas.

cute, huh?  here's how they went together ---

  • the card base is from studio g, the snowman was already cut out.
  • the ribbon - although you can't tell from the pics very well -- has a sparkle to it, i picked it up in acmoore's. 
  • the tag - the bottom layer is a piece of green cardstock i had on hand - same with the plain white.  i used marina mist ink from SU, and the thank you set also comes from an SU stamp set.  i used a dauber to add some old olive ink (also SU) around the edge.  the white tag was cut out with the large SU tag punch -- the green one i cut freehand.  the tag is finished off with blue baker's twine.

  • you can see the round piece a little easier in the above photo.  this was cut out with a 2 3/8 circle punch from SU - again, olive green on the edges.  then i used versamark to stamp the snowflake, and covered it in snowflake embossing powder.
  • i also used the olive green  to highlight the edges of the pre-cut snowman.

thanks for stopping by!  be sure to stop by again -- lots more fun stuff happening around the craft table! :)  happy stamping!
